A beautifully designed guide to the landscape and diverse art of this multifaceted, and in many places, still untouched region. "Provence: Art, Architecture, Landscape" takes readers on a fascinating journey from the ancient sites in Orange to the university town of Aix-en-Provence, from the metropolis of Marseille to the spectacular Gorges du Verdon. Each chapter contains an overview of a specific area with a street map, many pictures, and essays that describe the history, geography, art, culture, and lifestyle of the area. The reader sees how Romanesque culture lives on through cloisters and churches and the Provencal landscape right up to the present day. The light and colors of the plants and wildlife blend into a unique panorama which inspired the late Impressionists Paul Cezanne and Vincent van Gogh.
